Mayfield Gardens near Oberon began to take shape in the mid-1990’s and today is one of the world’s largest privately owned cool climate gardens. Owned by the Hawkins family, Mayfield Gardens extend across more than 160 acres (64H) and sits within a 5,000acre working farm. Numerous follies and features are blended into the landscape: the breath-taking 80metre cascade, the walled kitchen garden; the stunning Water Garden, the Grotto, the Valley of the Five Ponds, the Venus Vale and the Gallery, the Aviary, the Chapel, rose garden and Islamic style pond and much, much more.
Inspired by the grandeur of English country garden estates, the Hawkins family and their local garden team have spent many years shaping 160 acres of the family farm into a stunning garden legacy.
Mayfield Gardens now employs and trains more than 60 locals, full-time, across many trades: including horticulture, stone masonry, green keeping, general labour, machinery operation, marketing, operations, food, service and more.
Mayfield Garden first opened to visitors in 2008, for one weekend, and the response was so enthusiastic that it was decided to open the Private Garden.
We will leave from opposite the Go Kart track on Peter Brock Drive, Eastern Creek at 8.00am and then head along the M4 to the Hydro Majestic at Medlow Bar for a 30 minute morning tea beak. After morning tea we will make our way towards Oberon and beyond to the beautiful Mayfield Gardens. After some exploring of the gardens we will then head back inside for some lovely wood fired pizza which will be topped with fresh produce that is grown on site.
